Meital Weiss & the 20th Alyn Wheels of Love – BITE SIZE

November 8, 2019
By: Joanna Shebson

The 20th Annual Wheel of Love Bike Ride begins the week of November 10th.

Wheels of Love supports the Alyn Rehabilitation hospital in Jerusalem which offers advanced rehab services to children with disabilities.

Riders come from all across the world to support this great cause and even the patients ride along in hand bike or tandem bikes.

I interviewed Atara Weiss whose daughter Meital will be riding this year. Meital is a hand bike champion and a patient at Alyn. At 10 months, doctors discovered a tumor on her spine that left her paralyzed from the waist down. After a recent surgery and intensive therapy at the hospital, Meital’s therapist suggest she join the SWIFT and BOLD Bike group at Alyn. This year will be her third Wheels of Love ride and a special one – it is also her Bat Mitzvah next month.

Listen to the podcast below…

The public is invited to come and cheer on the riders as they finish the ride and enter the Alyn Hospital. Thursday Nov 14th at 2pm. (Expect road closures so come early).

  • I love your website! It has helped give me great ideas about our trip! Is there a way of finding out what roads will be closed on November 14 for the end of the alyn ride? I planned an outing out of Jerusalem that day and don\’t want to have problems because of road closures. many thanks for your information and your help.
